Merryhill School News

School Pictures

Our fall pictures have arrived and will be on sale Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:45-6:00 p.m. Please be reminded that you are not able to take the pictures until they are purchased; they may only be viewed here. Please plan to pay by either check, or you can log in to the Lifetouch site from here and pay by credit card.

Original Works

Our students have done their wonderful art creations, and you can now purchase items with their artwork on it. The artwork and order forms were sent home on Friday; however, the price lists were not included. I will send a separate email with the price list shortly, and they will also be sent home today. These orders must be turned in by this Friday, November 3rd. Please return artwork, order form, and payment.

School Attire

Our weather is beginning to change, and we are starting to have cooler days. As a reminder, the elementary students have P.E. classes daily, and we often have those classes outside. In addition, all students have two recess times scheduled daily, and, unless there is inclement weather, we are outside daily. Please ensure that your student has proper attire and/or coats to be outside.


In addition, be reminded that elementary students are not to wear any items with zipper or hoods in the building. Those are fine for outside. A cardigan or the navy Merryhill pullover sweatshirt are the only acceptable items to be worn over uniforms.


Lastly, we will be placing uniform and/or spirit wear orders on the 1st and 15th of each month. Order forms are always available in the office.

Fall fundraiser delivery

As a reminder, our fall fundraiser products will be delivered on Wednesday, November 1st. Please remember to come to the gym to pick up your items any time after 2:00 p.m. All items must be picked up by 6:30 p.m. as we do not have any way to keep items cold after that time.


In addition, all prizes, including Build-a-Buddy (which will also be able to be purchased by those that did not receive that prize) and the money machine, will be here on Tuesday, December 5th.

Hearing and Vision Results

Please note that our health screening results have arrived and were sent home Friday. Under the vision and hearing categories, you will see the specific results in each eye and ear respectively, In addition, on the far right in each section, you will see the word "Results" and either a "P" for pass or "REF" for a referral. If a child is being referred, there will be referral paperwork for you to take for follow up assessment.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Halloween

Please be reminded that students are not permitted to wear costumes to school tomorrow. It is a regular uniform day for all elementary students.

As many of you will be out tomorrow night for holiday family fun, I am attaching an article about the fears that children occasionally have during this time. I hope that you enjoy.
